Some resources available for locating former teachers include social media websites such as LinkedIn or Facebook, teacher-focused websites such as RateMyTeachers.com and TeacherWeb.com, or individual school websites. Students can also ask their former classmates for current information on teachers.
People interested in finding former teachers should first check with the school's website to determine whether the teacher still works there. If no information is given, they should contact the school for assistance. Another resource is LinkedIn, which is one of the largest professional online networks. The website has more than 400 million members, as of 2016. Students who have an account with LinkedIn can search for their former teachers and connect using the site's messaging system.
